Former Nigerian youth international John Owoeri has completed a move to Chinese outfit Shanghai Shenxin.

Owoeri played for another Chinese side Baoding Yingli Yitong last season, but has now signed a two-year contract with lower division side Shenxin.

The 31-year-old took to his official Twitter handle to announce his move with a message, "#starboy, it’s official Done deal God is great."

The midfielder arrives at Shenxin with a wealth of experience. Owoeri has played for several European club sides such as Feyenoord, Westerloo, Åtvidabergs and Bollklubben Häcken.

Owoeri was part of the Flying Eagles team with current Super Eagles captain John Mikel Obi that won the silver medal at the 2005 under 20 FIFA World Youth Championships.
